For the next season BMC will be making a clear distinction between the 120 mm and 140 mm travel bikes with the addition of the Speedfox. While the Trailfox will remain as a 140 mm travel frame the Speedfox will take on the marathon race market with 120 mm of travel. As per the TF02 and TF03 of 2009. Offered in Australia as an SF01 frameset in Black and green and SF02 complete bike in red.

Sporting Sram Rival and Easton Vista wheels the next season Roadracer will be a lot lighter. Rumor has it a carbon fork with a tapered steerer but the studio pic doesn't look like it. Will have to see the demo bikes and a few weeks to be sure. The new colour is more along the lines of the previous generation SSX and there is another colour that probably wont be seen down under. With a RRP of about $3550 to go with the new lower weight it should also be a popular model.

With a few component changes and a revised colour scheme the SSX Streetfire from BMC remains largely unchanged for the coming season. And with an estimated price of around $2275 it will be as popular as ever in the Australian market place. With plenty of BMC signature features it will be noticed well ahead of other brands on the streets.
